Interesting details about the Starlink satellites are emerging as SpaceX is set to launch 60 of their prototype satellites tonight. The design seems to be quite revolutionary.

Kessler Syndrome will increasingly become something we will need to think about and plan for.

I remember Lockheed had some "space fence" program that they were trying to track and figure out a way to clean up space junk.
I haven't heard much about it recently, but ive been out of that world for a few years.

things like India and China testing anti satellite weapons (blowing up their own birds) certainly isn't helping....
which brings up another thing - anti satellite weapons. those are a fun (newish) thing
